StatCounter Description

StatCounter is a web tracking service that allows you to get real time statistics of your web visitors across multiple websites. The service is available for free but is limited to only 500 log-sizes and 250,000 pageloads (explained later). StatCounter offers multiple plans for webmaster that get more pageloads than the average site.

StatCounter Detailed Overview

StatCounter has offered their tool for free for many years but in my opinion, the tool has been overlooked by many people. They’ve made many improvements and the tool is incredibly easy to use. Right from the get-go, you can manage multiple sites from one account by creating projects.

Like a regular web statistic tool, you’ll be able to see a data of your unique visitors, returning visitors, page loads, and first time visitors. You can see the data presented daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly and also choose specific date ranges.

If you’ve ever wondered what your visitors are doing on your site, you can look at what pages they entered from, where they exited, individual visitor paths, and the most popular pages. All this information can be used to improve your site. For example, if you find that your visitors are exiting at a certain page, you can try to get them to opt-in on that page so you can contact them later.

While your page statistics help you make the necessary adjustments to your site, it doesn’t tell the complete picture. That’s why Statcounter also shows you the visit length and returning visits of your site. This is a good indicator of whether your site is providing value to your visitors. The only thing I wasn’t happy about was that this can only be measured for the whole site, not individual pages.

StatCounter is also a great way to analyze your SEO campaigns as well. You can view what search engines your visitors are coming from and a percentage breakdown from each engine. This information will reveal which keywords you should be focusing on. Furthermore, the tool shows the country, state, city, and a Google map of your visitors. This can help if you’re running international campaigns.

What’s more, you can see the usability information like the resolution stats, whether javascript is enabled, and the browser being used in order to present your website. With this data, you can run through your site with different resolutions, with javascript on/off, and different browsers to make sure your site is designed to accommodate all your visitors.

My favorite part of Statcounter is the ability to individually look at each unique visitors’s data. This data is put into what’s called logs. By studying the logs, you can get a good idea of what visitors are doing and get an overall consensus of your visitor statistics and actions.

StatCounter Reputation

Overall, Statcounter is a great tool and offers everything you need to make the necessary changes to your site. The statistics are accurate and the tool gives you the real time visitor info as they state on their site. There are so many features like keyword analysis, exit pages, referral information, visitor paths, visit length and more that help it stand out from other free stat tools in the market.

I do wish there was a feature that allowed you to measure goals. For example: If you could set up a link and measure conversions, then you would be able to see how your pages are doing in terms of profitability. You’d get to see which pages are leading to the sale. This would really be an intuitive way to monetize your content and know exactly where to focus your SEO efforts. Instead, you will have to use separate tools to measure conversions/cost per visitor/sale referral pages.

Statcounter is free for 250,000 pageloads per month and a log size of 500. The log size shows you all the specific details about each individual visitor. If you need more pageloads and a bigger log-size to analyze info, there are plans available at $9, $19, and $29 a month. All in all, this is a great tool especially if you’re doing SEO or have a site built to monetize content. Statcounter has received positive feedback from users, and I give it a strong recommendation.

Its simple try it

I have been using statcounter for my blogs and it does it's job really well and quick.

It updates very often and has many features like which visitors came, where they came from blah blah, which page they left to, how long they were on the page. It is great for anyone that wants to try it!

It's the best traffic tracking service

I have been using StatCounter for my blogs and it does it's job really well.

It updates data very often and has many features like which site my visitors came from, which page they left to, what country they're from and how long they visited.

It's great for beginner and intermediate bloggers and website owners but advanced people should get some paid service.

I love that it's free and has many features. I recommend it to everybody.

Well, I liked it

Very easy to use I must say. Easy to get a handle on and is definitely something I would recommend. The only potential issues I see is if you're unwilling to pay. If you have a site with exceedingly high traffic, it is probably best you find another tool.

To me, that is the only real downside to this tool. And simply because I'm cheap. Give it a try. If you like it and have the traffic to make use of the upgraded account, you're probably making enough money to not regret it.

Love This Tool

This is my favorite tool for tracking visitors to my website. I like how it is so simple to use, yet at the same time it is extremely powerful and lets you dig very deeply into your visitor analytics. I use the keyword analysis stat the most and this helps me to see new keywords that people are using to find my site.

Not big enough

Super easy to use but it's simply not big enough. I am afraid to upgrade here because it says if I do, I can look as far back as the last 2000 visitors. The page that I use it for gets about 220 hits per day. Upgrading would obviously be a waste of money for me as I can't even see 2 weeks back with the upgrade. Other than this huge problem I love this system, as it even has a visitors map where you can see where in the world people live that are hitting your site. This counter is the best out there but needs to be about 5 times bigger. I recommend this to everyone that has their own site.

Fantastic Free Tool that lets you "spy" on your visitors

I don't know what I'd do without StatCounter. I've been using it for a few years now and have it installed on all my websites and blogs.

It provides up to date and very accurate tracking of your visitors. It is quick and easy to install and there is a wealth of information including the keywords that visitors used to find your website, the country and city they came from, the site that referred them, the length of time they stayed on your website, which pages they visited and more.

The log file has increased recently to 500 for free members, but you can add as many sites as you like and the upgrade fee is reasonable if you need a bigger log file.

Good for tracking!

It is a very nice tool for tracking everyone who visits your website. I had made a new website yet was worried no one was visiting. I advertised a bit and when I learned of this program I learned I had been getting plenty of visitors daily. The tool is easy to use and for someone that needs to find out if their site is getting as popular as they want, this is a great tool to use.

Gives detailed and current minute to minute stats on visitors

Compared to other sites that keep track of visitors, this site is on the top of my list.

I love that you can see the different ip addresses, times, and frequency of visits. It also keeps track of genuine browser visits, so I can see how well traffic to my site is doing.

Good but not great !

This was the first website visitor counter I came across. It has all the features the user wants like visitor geographical location and referral url. These features helped me a lot to change my strategy of website promotion to reach maximum potential. The url referral feature is one of my favorite features where you can even see the keywords which got you visitors. It is really a good one but there are some features I miss, like bounce rate. Also I find flaw in it's presentation of stats in which Google analytics excels. All in all it is a good one but not the best one.

Great Tool

I have tried many different counters but this one is definitely the best. It is easy to use and a great way to keep track of site visitors.

I like the way you can see things by graphs and also check unique and returning visitors as well.

It is definitely worth using this one to keep an eye on your visitors to your Blog or Website.

The best GPT site with a 250 point signup bonus and the greatest referral system ever. Newly launched so join in early for all the points.

Has plenty of offers and is updated daily. Has prizes ranging from emailing codes for xbox live and amazon to game pre-orders.

 
 
 
Stat Counter is WORTH IT!

I used this counter on one of my old domains to keep track of stats. It never failed me. It was easy to read and understand how my stats were kept. I would recommend this counter to anyone who wants to keep track of their site stats. The best part, it's FREE. Give it a try. I am sure not everyone will be satisfied with it, but I recommend it. You won't be disappointed! At least I wasn't.

Excellent Service

I joined this site a year ago and used it to track my websites traffic. I was amazed at the power of this service, and it made it easier to see where my traffic was coming from, and this gave me the ability to target the ads on my site to that certain group.

For such a simple system, it allowed me to greatly improve the profits I was making from my site. I would recommend this to any website owner as it is top of it's league.

Much better than Google Analytics

I use this excellent analytic tool over Google's because it gives up to the minute stats and the interface is so user friendly. Best thing about it is the option to remove your IP address from the statistics. I constantly click my blog and my statistics with Google were skewed. I definitely recommend this service as a hit counter. No problems with this service at all, fast set up through blogger, easy to use interface with up to the minute statistics.

Not as good as Google Analytics

I used this program when I first started blogging and, at first, I loved it. But it really didn't seem that accurate when compared with other stats programs I was using. Also it was more difficult to see where the traffic was coming from. Google Analytics is free, more accurate, and unlimited. I definitely wouldn't go back to StatCounter.

Free is Good!

The best part about StatCounter is that it is free! I added it to my site and it provides me some very useful information. It gives me insight into not only how many people are coming to my site but lets me know the words that brought them there... I have been using it for a few months and often wonder how I lived without it!

Great FREE traffic tracker!

I love StatCounter and use it for all my sites and blogs. I only use the free account, but you get everything you need. Graphs, charts, everything. It's also very easy to implement (just copy the code), customizable and easy to access. I would recommend this to everyone that needs a stats counter, but don't want to invest in a more expensive option.

My favorite site to track my traffic

I started using StatCounter just over six months ago and every time I start another blog I make sure and add it to StatCounter. StatCounter provides me with a reliable way to see how many unique visitors I get to each of my blogs each day. However my two favorite things about the site are the fact I can see where my traffic comes from and what keywords people are using to land on my sites. I then focus on these keywords and write more posts on them. Additionally I can see what countries people are coming from and this helps me as I use an advertising site which pays me for US traffic. Overall StatCounter is my favorite way to track my site visitors.

One of the best !

This is truly one of the best programs I have ever used. I decided I wanted to be a blogger just to advertise my sites. For a little while, I thought that no one was coming to my blog. There were no comments on my posts, etc. But with this, I can see that lot of people do! They click on my ads, they take time to understand my posts. It's amazing and it is absolutely FREE! It takes no risk so why not try it out for yourself?

Amazing & Awesome Way To Track Your Stats

I joined StatsCounter and entered the little counter on my blog. And yes.. it's AMAZING. It tracks every bit of detail about your visitors. You can find out where they are coming from, if they have returned to your site, where they are from, etc. I constantly check my Visitor Paths to see how long they stay and where they come from so I can promote my blog there more often.

Best part is... it's FREE.

Only 500 Free Hits - Have to Pay for more

I have been using Statcounter for a while now, but the free version only offers 500 free hits.

It will only keep track of 500 hits for free. If you want more you have to pay and I never have.

However I recently found out about Google Analytics. It is also free but is unlimited. So now I use it and it is VERY powerful. It has nice charts and graphs etc. So, Statcounter I think will have a hard time competing with Google Analytics if you ask me.

I started blogging about a year ago. I would say StatCounter had helped me a lot in tracking my visitors. I get to know how many page visits I have for the day by StatCounter.

I have been using Statcounter for a couple years now. As a blogging newbie, I had no idea what I was doing and needed some help. I installed this stat counter on my blog when I first started it so I could check where my traffic was coming from. With StatCounter, I'm able to see how people are coming to my blog. It is very easy to use and understand. I will never stop using it!

One Of The Best, If Not The Best

I'll tell you, out of all of the counters I've used, this one is the most detailed and reliable! I've had counters that after I've reached around 500 hits with the counter, the counter would disappear and definitely did not get any type of stats with the counter! This counter has helped me so much with what's going on with my blog! The keyword analysis is a great service, it lets me see what keywords are being searched to find my blog in the search engines!

But my favorite feature is where the visitors are coming from! Oh man, this one is exciting to me because it lets me know that my blog and online talk show is actually being seen and heard across the world! To be honest, the majority of my hits are actually coming from the Middle East and Asian countries, not the US! I'm not sure how you guys feel about that, but that's exciting for me, I'm international... lol! But this tool is great, I recommend anyone who has a site or blog to add this service, 100%!

I have another great counter on my blog that is also very detailed, but Stat Counter is hands down the best!

The Most Detailed Web Stats

The first thing I would like to tell you about StatCounter is that I love it! I was in need of this kind of thing since I started using Adsense. I guess that this is the only service which provides all of your website's stats in such detail which are 100% accurate. It gives us details of each and everything about every single hit that your website receives. Moreover, it is really very easy to use it. You just have to paste the code they give you after signing up on your website or blog and within no time, you will be able to see the details of every hit that your website receives. And the best part is that it's totally free! I really recommend it to you as it is a really useful tool to easily manage your website's stats.

Usage for multiple sites

I have used statcounter for years. The thing I like about it is that it is free. I can also list multiple sites under one login and check up on all my sites at one place. I also like the variety of viewing options of it's tracking data.

StatCounter does the work well

As a beginning blogger using a popular free blogging platform, I was faced with the need to find out if my blog was receiving any visitors at all, and I came upon StatCounter from the search pages. It's very easy to use and more to my liking, it's free. Installing the small script is a breeze and it works like a charm. When I obtained my own web hosting I no longer needed a counter since I had access to more detailed stats. However, I still keep StatCounter on my free-hosted blogs and it still is working for me.

Very reliable way to check stats daily!

I installed this stat counter on my blog when I first started doing SEO and needing to check where my "hits" were coming from in order to improve my ranking online.

I found that this stat counter was by far one of the easiest to use, install and understand, especially for a newbie like me.

With StatCounter, you are able to see where people come from before landing on your blog and even see where they leave to or their exit links.

You are able to view the IP address and location of visitors, and much more!

I absolutely love this free tool and I log in daily to check my stats! I would recommend this to anyone!

Probably as good as.. if not better .. than Google Analytics!

The Only Counter On All My Blogs

I love StatCounter! I started putting them on my blogs years ago and thought they were just plain and simple so I opted for those fancy design counters that went with my blog layout. You know like basketballs, books, money, whatever your blog topic, there was a counter for it. One day I was playing around with the last StatCounter on one of my blogs and came across the "visitor length" pie chart. Wow! I did not know StatCounter provided all those details about my visitors. Everything I could possibly want to know about my visitors was right there in front of me all that time. Things like: how they found my site (backlinks tip), what country origin, which page of my blog they exited and tons more of cool stuff. With all this information at your fingertips, how can you go wrong? I immediately deleted all those over counters and re-installed StatCounter on ALL my blogs. Nothing fancy, but it does the trick, and best of all it's free. Hopefully in the future, they will come up with some better designs.

An award winning site tracking provider

I signed up in this site as a free member and I just required to put a counter of them in my blog. Their free service is just great. They show you the details of the last 100 visitors to your blog. You get a detailed graph for the number of daily visitors and their location as well. They Also show you the most popular keywords in your blog. It was very useful for me to track the most popular posts in my blog.

The Free Feature was so useful that I decided to go for the paid feature. The Only Advantage of the paid feature is the stats are not limited to the last 100 visitors. Otherwise I did not find too much difference between these two type of memberships. The another thing that I disliked about them is they send free members too many emails (5-7 daily) which describes the advantages of their paid service. I Will Recommend Others to stick to their free service.

I came across StatCounter while searching for counters on the Internet. I just wanted a plain visitor counter for my blog. But I was impressed when I saw that this counter didn't only just gave me the number of visitors but also gave complete day to day analysis of hits.

You can avoid getting the counter count page loads from your own browser by giving them your IP address. You can get different stats which include page loads, unique page visits and returning user of which the latter has been of utmost importance to me as it is very important for me to know if some visitor is returning back to my site some other time.

So it's a must try out product.

The best Website Counter!

I have used this for all my websites and blogs and I must say, StatCounter is amazing! And the price is the best - FREE! (They do have a premium service too, though). You just can't beat all the features StatCounter offers and how easy it is to incorporate them into any site, be it a multi-thousand hits per day website or a measly blog. Another great feature is that you can add all your websites into a single account and check them all here. The service also provides info about the users' location, browser and even tells what keywords they search for which is a priceless tool! All in All, if you have a blog or a website, Get This!

Possibly the best free tool for Internet Marketers

I have been using this tool for over a year now, and it continues to impress me that StatCounter gives so much for free. Many link tracking services boast they will give the exact source to your clicks, but many are also link cloakers (in order to track your link, you must use their generated link, which has the main website as the root), where StatCounter gives you a small bit of simple code to place, so when you are promoting your link, you are truly promoting your link and not the cloaker. This gives you better ranking in the search engines.

Also, I love that they give record for the last 500 entries. I have yet to see another site to give more than 20 for free. Plus, you get the statistics behind the clicks. As a newbie in promoting, I learned a lot about the keywords to use, simply by checking which keywords was I getting the most clicks from on Google.

StatCounter definitely has my service if I should ever need to upgrade. The many features they give their free members definitely has me sold!

Marketers, Are You Ready For The Truth?

 
 
 
A great site to track your stats!

I was really impressed when I joined this site a year ago that really helped me track every detail I needed to know about my visitors! I love their graph that they show when you click your site that shows everything from page loads, unique visitors, returning visitors.

On the left hand side they have so many tools you can use like tracking the location, average time, exiting page, and I am so surprised they even have browser lookup, which means you can know about the their web browser, which you can optimize for viewing more for the most popular browser!

This site has helped me find out how popular my site is in traffic and visitors, and most importantly, which keywords they search for. It has helped me out a lot in finding what keywords to target in my post to get even more visitors!

I am so amazed that putting a view counter on your website can do all this! This is a great website, and recommend you try putting up a view counter, because it sure is worth it!
